The course

Our Global Sustainable Development degree enables you to investigate the contemporary problems that our governments, scientists, philosophers, educationalists and charities are grappling with, and challenge you to explore possible, practical solutions. You will also have the opportunity to complete professional certificates in: Digital Literacy, Coaching and Sustainability Auditing.

The GSD course examines crucial challenges in areas such as health, ageing, food security, hunger, energy, labour, climate change, and production and consumption patterns, from a variety of perspectives offered by experts engaged in real-life research.

Practitioners from the sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities spheres will explain how they approach and analyse these issues. You’ will learn their techniques and acquire the research, analytical and rhetorical skills necessary to critique the various approaches. You will also examine the possibilities for bringing together sustainability efforts and development policies in a politically sound, economically fair and socially democratic setting.
